LibriVox recording of The Trial of Oscar Wilde (Dramatic Reading) by Anonymous. In 1895 Oscar Wilde was convicted of gross indecency and sentenced to two years' hard labor.

While a more complete account of the trial was published several years later, it omitted the more 'sensational' exchanges. This shorter version was clearly intended for a more prurient reader. In it we hear Wilde's...
